St. John’s Wort + Damiana
St. John’s Wort is one of the highest selling herbs on the market, and is known to aid in mild to moderate depression. Both St. John’s Wort and Damiana are flowering yellow plants that can aid in helping with feelings of depression, nervousness, and general seasonal blues. These herbs have the medicinal properties to let through those happy thoughts and feelings that we are missing when suffering from depression or seasonal depression.
We also know and believe that the medicine of this plant extends beyond its internal compounds and also has to do with the actual colour yellow. Yellow is an extremely calming and happy colour, and it also ties in with the energy from the sunshine and the yellow pigment that we are often missing when we’re experiencing feelings of seasonal depression or wintery blues.
